Welcome back to the dying world of The Final Station. Let’s take a road trip.

 

Last year’s The Final Station from tinyBuild and DoMyBest Games was a surprise hit on SteamXbox One, and PS4.  Taking an “overused concept” of zombies (some may say, I do not), or even pixel art (again, not this writer), it puts a nice twist on the normally familiar zombie tales that I obviously will not ruin for anyone who hasn’t had the chance to experience it yet, though that then begs the question of why you’re here reading about DLC to a game you haven’t beaten, but I digress.  We reviewed the game last year, and at that point, no one expected anything more to come from the game (or maybe just I didn’t – DON’T JUDGE ME).  Luckily, we have a traitor in our midsts…

 

 

What is The Only Traitor? 

While the train is heading to The Final Station, you are going on a road trip through the dying world, with the ultimate goal of finding the last remaining shelter. You’ll discover new locations, revisit familiar places, encounter new dangerous enemies, and find more clues about the mystery of Visitations.

Key Features:
  • Explore new locations
    Venture through previously unexplored territories starting in the western deserts, and revisit some familiar places from the main storyline.
     
  • Fight new enemies
    Encounter brand new monsters and other types of unexpected enemies!
     
  • Choose your companions
    Each survivor now has personal traits, abilities (such as crafting or medic), and stories to tell. You can have only one companion at a time in your car, so choose who you want to travel with wisely! 
     
  • Explore the world of The Final Station in-depth
    Get answers to some unresolved questions, and learn personal stories about the characters you met in the main game.

 

 

A chance to play through a 2+ hour story campaign that takes place during the train’s journey to the end is very much something I’m looking forward to.  It’s going to be intriguing to see just who this traitor is and how he connects to the overarching story from the base game, and I’m hoping it at least ties the whole game up nicely, but I wouldn’t mind a few extra unanswered questions or curiosities sprinkled in if those lead to a sequel and/or more DLC.

 

 

And instead of a train this time we travel by car, so it’ll be interesting to see just how that mechanic works in regards to how the train portions worked in the base game.  It could be quite compelling by the end, so here’s to a few more miles down the road, and a satisfying conclusion in the end.

 

 

Sadly, there’s no word on whether the DLC will become available on Xbox One and PS4, though I think tinyBuild is competent and generous enough to not leave us console fans in the dust, so to speak.  Hopefully, they’ll share some news on that front sooner rather than later.
